I’m slowly catching up on NaNoWriMo. Last week’s holidays and company made it tough to actually get serious writing down, but now that I’m back at the office, hopefully I’ll be able to get some real work done during repos. I still have hella visitors coming down this week, but it should still be more… Read More In which t bores her audience with character descriptions
Damn straight I’m never going to change, if by “never change,” you mean never change my mind about dating annoying men who don’t understand that no means no. Seriously. Do you think that shit WORKS? That I’ll be FLATTERED? UGH. You are not the first man to call me smart and beautiful. I promise, I… Read More In which t vents
I had a fantastic weekend, but I’m swamped here at work so here’s something from the “I’ll post this someday” pile. Pate is made of finely ground cornflour, and served with a variety of sauces: sauce legume, sauce de tomate, or even klangklang, a snot-like sauce made of okra. Pate itself can be one of… Read More Street Food!

Me: Lyle, do you know where I can buy cigarettes? Lyle: Do I look like the Lonely fucking Planet? Turns out, going up north for a few days was a pretty good idea. Saw a lot of people. Got a lot of work done. Cooked a lot of good food (OMFG it was amazing). Basically,… Read More In which t visits the ParaCrew

Also, friends are down visiting from the North, which is really exciting. We started the night off with ice cream (!!!), then followed it with homemade egg-drop soup and a… Read More In which t reports that she has not, in fact, drowned her cat
If you guessed sleep, you are DEAD FUCKING WRONG. Last night’s overpriced hamburger didn’t go down well. It was the first time I’ve managed to get food poisoning (how do you “get” food poisoning? don’t you just poison yourself? weird) since I’ve been at post. I get home, a little tispy and a lot tired,… Read More What did Theresa do last night?
Man, I forgot how freaking hard preparing lessons is. I’ve spent the last few days coming up with a comprehensive outline for an HTML/ CSS class, complete with homework assignments and accompanying examples . . . in French. And I’m not done yet. It’s frustrating because I could teach the classes by the seat of… Read More
